The Thief, the Fool and the Big Fat King Paperback
by Terry Deary
Illustrated by Helen Flook
Part of the Tudor Tales series
Every day, hapless hopefuls - or 'coneys', as the locals call them - come to dirty and dangerous London town, trying to seek their fortunes.
Who is waiting for them? Tricksters and conmen, that's who - like young Eleanor's family.
Eleanor becomes troubled by her family's cunning and foils their plans to catch a coney.
Meanwhile, fearsome King Henry VIII has some rather cruel ideas of justice ...for everyone.
